History: The Frenchton breed is 75 percent French Bulldog and 25 percent Boston Terrier. The hybrid breed was created to eliminate health risks associated with the French Bulldog. Since this mix is fairly new, a lot of the Frencton history can be told through its parent breeds. The French Bulldog originated in England and was developed as a toy-sized version of the Bulldog. The French Bulldog was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1898, winning the hearts of many owners and breeders in France and the United States of America. Around 1870, a Bostonian man brought a dog mixed with Bulldog and English White Terrier into Boston and this is the original ancestor to the Boston Terriers. The dog’s name was Judge. The Boston Terrier was accepted by the AKC in 1893.
